CW057 is similar in colour
pattern to C.
is higher and stockier in the body, and it also has
a narrower caudal peduncle. Placed in Lineage 8 sub
clade 4 which comprises the "intermediate long-snouts"
with deeper bodies. It also includes Brochis
in sub-clade 1 which was synonymised with Corydoras
by Britto in 2003 but in time there will be a revision
which will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871)
to full genera again. Aquarium care:
This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful,
and would be best housed with small to medium tank
mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a
species tank for breeding purposes. Diet:
A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults
with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will
keep your Corydoras in good health.
